Event to showcase UNM projects in engineering and digital arts

November 8, 2019 - by Kim Delker

The University of New Mexico’s School of Engineering and the College of Fine Arts are collaborating on an event that showcases a few of UNM’s projects in art and science, demonstrating how the two can intersect and form partnerships.

The event will be held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 13 in the Centennial Engineering Center’s Stamm Commons.

Michael Devetsikiotis, chair and professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, helped organize the event with James Stone, chair and associate professor in the Department of Film and Digital Arts.

The goals are to build awareness of some of the projects in arts, especially film and digital arts, and engineering and computer science, in the hopes that collaborations will be formed. These could include research projects, events, or degree programs.

The event will feature a variety of demos and presentations, and light refreshments will be served. Students, staff and faculty are encouraged to attend. No RSVP is required.

The following presentations are scheduled:

  • 9 a.m. Deborah Fort, Film and Digital Arts. “Artistic Approaches to Virtual Reality.”
  • 9:30 a.m. Dan Galassini, Film and Digital Arts. “Constructing and Designing the Movie Set”
  • 10 a.m. Nathan Fabian, Film and Digital Arts. “Game Development in Film and Digital Arts.”
  • 11 a.m. Leah Buechley, Computer Science. “Hand and Machine: Integrating Art, Craft, and Technology”
  • 12:15 p.m. Fernando Moreu, Civil, Construction & Environmental Engineering. “Dance Engineering & Human-Infrastructure Interfaces.”

In addition, Christos Christodoulou, Jim and Ellen King Dean of Engineering and Computing, and Regina Carlow, dean of the College of Fine Arts, are scheduled to stop by around 11 a.m.
